ECS Tuning Coilover Covers

Purchased some coilover covers for the Evo from ECS Tuning. These were about a perfect fit on the Ohlins, stretching from the top of the coil to the bottom of the spring perch. I’ll likely remove them for racing, but keep them on during other times I’m driving the car. Doing my best to keep…

All of the Bushings

New bushings ordered before the Evo’s annual corner balance and alignment – still haven’t taken care of since the accident, but everything should still be straight with the car. Noticed the Whiteline outer tie rod ends were torn, as well as the Superpro duro3741k caster bushings. Not sure if this was due to 4-6 years…

Custom Valved Ohlins (Evo)

Just in – newly custom valved Ohlins for the 2020 season and beyond! This has been in the plans for some time now, and with quite a bit of wear and tear on my 7 year old Ohlins, I decided to sell that set and install a new, custom valved set for the Evo. For…

New Sponsor – Ross Sport

Big thanks to my newest sponsor, Ross Sport! These guys are big Evo enthusiasts in the UK, and were able to play a major role in helping me rebuild my car due to their crazy deals on EDM parts. The EDM stuff is the same as the JDM stuff, at around 60% of the cost.…

The Evo is BACK!

Been a very quiet off-season with the Evo out of commission, but I finally picked up the car yesterday, after a month or so at the body shop, mainly waiting on various parts. The car looked like it was in bad shape, but once you opened it up – well it still looked pretty bad…

Mil.Spec 100 Cell Cat

Been a quiet off-season with the Evo in repair & no changes planned for the M3 – my new catalytic converter, however, did finally arrive – 3 months after ordering the thing. It was the second part of a 2 stage process in me removing some knock the car was seeing – part 1 was…

UOA 12072019 (Evo)

UOA for the Evo with regular Red Line 5w30. Ton of hard usage ont he car, 3-4 track days, a few autocrosses, etc. The regular RL 5w30 seems to be showing a little weakness here again with the copper number. I may switch back to the race oil, especially given how well it did and…

Last Event 2019 – Laps, Inc. & Disaster

Hard to talk about this one – had an ice cold event today instructing with Laps, Inc. The track was cold, so each session I took a decent warm up lap. I had a solid lap during the second session, nailing a 2:45.45 – on the phone GPS, but the stopwatch confirms it. I was…

2019 Mid Season Updates

About as late of a “mid-season” update as I can get here. Quite a number of tweaks, changes, and upgrades for the Evo. Not as much for the M3, just some minor tweaks. Evo New upgraded sway-bar endlinks to fix the clunking, especially in the rear Adjustments to alignment (removed preload, later added a touch…
